Call for Papers: Right to play – challenges and opportunities


The British Psychological Society is welcoming papers that consider the presence or absence of play in the lives of children and young people for a forthcoming issue of the Educational and Child Psychology journal. The society wants papers that focus on research and practice such as:

  • Play within the school curriculum
  • Extra-curricular activities
  • Access to play
  • Play for marginalised groups.

The special issue will be published in September 2020.

Closing date: 1 October 2019
